Working With Your spouse: Noura Sakkijha, co-founder and CEO, Mejuri

"Your co founder is your husband. You're not the first person on this show. Who's coders their spouse. But i really like. It's something that. I cannot fathom working with your partner so and i know what it is like to have a co founder but i also am very protective around like keeping keeping parts of my life separate. So what is that. Like to work with your husband. It's crazy for us. To be honest. I think a lot of people do it says together because it's so hard to start a business that i used to work sixteen seventeen hours a day and so if my partner wasn't in a similar lifestyle i don't know how things would have worked out to be honest with us. I think in that sense. It was really a positive. Obviously you know it gets stuff because we had to put rules around the separation exactly like you said going back home in going on a date. I don't necessarily wanna talk about strategy. We really had to set boundaries and and really be honest with each other like. I don't wanna talk about work now. Can we talk about something else and so try to figure out. How do we create the separation. But i think over time it just becomes part of your lifestyle like i. I just think of juries part of us and so we became a lot more comfortable especially as the company grew and we started to have our own vary obvious roles and responsibilities. And i think that is actually something that i would recommend for anyone. Who's working with their partners to make sure that you have clear roles and responsibilities. And who essentially is that decision maker on certain areas versus the other. How do you split up the responsibilities. So he's The presidency oh and he works on all the revenue generating areas of the business. And i have all of the other areas. We essentially put the strategy together. We worked closely together. But we have very different cassettes. I'm like i said i'm an engineer. He's more he's from finance background. I have knowledge in the jewelry. Industry saw work closely with creative with product culture in hr a ceo whereas magid is really focused with the marketing team at retail and international expansion. And so there's definitely a division that didn't happen overnight as the company grew. It was more obvious where we wanna put revenue generation. Where do we wanna put the structure of the company the culture and so that's how essentially things came boat. The good thing between us is that we have difference consents.

Dont Mess With Notorious RBG: How to Fight For The Supreme Court

"To this week's on one with Angela. Arrived podcast. NATORI is a CB does not have the same notoriety as notorious RPG and what is really notorious is the Senate Republicans for trying to bulldoze the traditional Supreme Court nominations process. So we have assembled an all star legal panel today that also reflects how Supreme Court should look it probably also think here to break it all the way down like a fraction are Kristen Clark President and Executive Director of the National Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law Christopher. Kane. Chief counsel of demand Justice Ellie Misao justice correspondent at the nation and Tina Johnson President and CEO of times up. Hello everybody. Angela. Thank you so much for being here. So I want to start with giving honor where honor is due in. That is to start with Ruth Bader GINSBURG who we lost on September. Eighteenth. I feel like she held on just as long as she possibly could end for that I say thank you. To our BG to the to the real story is and I just wanted to give you all the opportunity to share some thoughts on route Baiter ins, birds passing on her impact in jurisprudence in which he wrote some phenomenal opinions including just two words, I dissent and you know anything else on your hearts to share about that because then we're going to get into the battle that is the Supreme Court nominations but I really WanNa give her some some time just do. Well, if you're a lover of justice than you definitely are feeling this, you're feeling the loss of Justice Ginsburg on the court right now having been inside the court was always great to see her in action. She was always an active questioner questioner always asking all of the tough questions and and really pushing. The. The Orleans before her. I also think though about Thurgood Marshall and what he meant for the court and Thurgood Marshall is somebody who dedicated his career to the practice of civil rights law when he was appointed in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, seven, and justice Ginsburg frank lease the only a second civil rights lawyer to sit on the court. So right now we're at a moment where there's that void that vacancy in terms of somebody brings that lens to the issues that come before the court. So for me that really matters because we're not getting that with this nominee has been put forward. I'm. Christian I agree with you completely, I mean this this her career even before she got on the court is astonishing in all of us who are working women who are women who can sign around credit card applications and hold a mortgage in our own name and pursue our careers including. Alexis. Johnson wrote this morning you know including the current nominee to the court. We are -bility to do that to repair Berg I mean she dreamed up the idea that the equal protection clause should cover women equally as we weren't in there we were you know the kinds of. Laws kept women out of the economic life of our country. Were not challenged until she had the foresights quite frankly and the legal ability to think that up and percents that and so even before she got on the court Mike Thurgood, Marshall's she had transformed landscape forever for all of us and my dog is Getting this okay. Tina go ahead see. My my story about Ginsburg is is a personal one. So I was in high school I was on trial and a week with states or nationals whatever and one of the guest judges was at school year. And then after the thing he he gave a talk for for the kids and we got to ask questions I asked him a question and answering made fun of. I I asked him how he squared his opinions about originalist. I didn't know what was called originalism. Downing intangible whatever. But how he's wearing those opinions. Brownie. Be Bored event, which was obviously against the original intent of the founding slavers. Yet like super important right and he laughed at me and then everybody else laughed and you're like I. Don't know what they're teaching school and everybody else. A bunch of jokes and then some like really not really credible answer I would later. So he kind of any make of me dismissing it is sat down kind of embarrassed son how GINSBURG heard this story? I am magid now that since they were friends was probably bragging. Point about how? Of. This seventeen year old or sixteen year old. But anyway she's GonNa Message to remark. That was held back. Kids they keep descending. which you know is again, I didn't even realize how awesome and amazing was. Sixteen seventeen year old kid. But it really to me goes to show that at even kind of social setting in A. In a private setting as it must have been for her earth the story. The her her commitment to raising credible questions and raising the sense not backing down She lived at right and she gave me a nice little note when I was a kid. To keep trying.

So this'll be you know people who listen to this have been sort of encountering Shimon from different perspectives. So I was hoping you would tell us about the first time you met Krishnamurti was what was The first time I drove. By the stories rather charming, a friend of mine. I was living is a bachelor by the beach in a little apartment. In a bag of plastic, excuse me a paper sack ended up on my porch and in it where eight talks by Birdie, at the University of San Diego Nineteen Sixty eight. And a series of. Talks that the Ramdas just given in San Francisco a more or less than oral history of his journey to the east. And not having anything else to do I listen to these tapes over and over again for year, we just hang a little cassette on my bedroom door and listen so listen to. Alternately, between Rob Dawson. Story and then listen to Chris steaks and then I realized that found out that he was alive. And that he was living in, Ohio I for a good part of the year. I didn't even know that Ohio existed. It was two and a half hours north of Los Angeles Long Beach where I was living. So I, drove my though Orange Volkswagen up and sat in the audience and you know just that my first meeting was that was just just like everybody else sitting there going who is this guy? There's something riveting about what he has to say I don't get it. I don't understand in other something compelling. Often. Say IT'S A. Christie. gave me a headache. You know just because there was something oblique about what he was pointing to that I couldn't quite. Grass. So this happened for several years. I came up every year then when he gave his talks in Ohi- in the springtime. And then finally. When I showed up at the Grove where they he speaks or heads spoken throughout his life there in Ohio. Grove's trees there were video cameras read. Krishnamurti was quite shy about having his picture taken and didn't want to be the Sarah Attention. Etc.. For the same reason when I you know Buddha when for several hundred years after his passing, they didn't represent him as a person that represented him as the empty chair or footprints in the sand because for the same reason that didn't WanNa have pictures agents.

If this was an house production just hired somebody they said, well, they hired somebody from from. Santa Barbara to record talks and I said well, I have some experience Navy I can help. And that led to a conversation. I've met with this woman her name is Evelyn Blau and have learn I became friends and so six months. Later we were playing going to Canada which was. A trip that Krishnamurti was going to visit one of the Sanders, their Canada. So that was my first real meeting one's. Going to his home in. Ohi- a times and then we actually started production of the first film that I did which was called A. Business the challenge of change. And it was the first biographical documentary that was on his life. Elections had just written the first of series of three different biographical books called the years of awakening which kind of exposed very early rather strange. USC early years how he was discovered. In quotes who is e? Etcetera Etcetera. Those books I read maybe twenty years ago those. Roads and. It was quite fascinating at a different time of meeting Krishnamurti than reading is his lectures very. Very different that again, that's the. I just finished writing and the Christian Rate Foundation is going to be publishing a book called. Unconditionally free and this is A. A sweeping history of Krishnamurti's talks from the very beginning, where did you come from? What is the mythology around the story? The all the kinds of things is the ASAKUSA society and then moving forward. What is the Mitra? Why was he had to be the new the next? The next? Buddha. ETC seper. So. Yeah.

Equity shot: What's going on with Tesla's stock price?

"An equity shot is when something happens that we get really really excited about and then we realized which taken off of slack and put it on to the podcast. Today we're going back to the very beginning of the show. We're talking about Tesla which she asks. I know it's not a private company. But if you go back episode one of equity. We're talking about Tesla reason too much of money because fascinating firm. I Have Danny Crichton with me. Danny how are you? I'm doing good although I think we should call it an equity shot. It's more like an equity joint because I am so high on this high stock price. The I did not see that joke coming. But I'll take it. You'll unless of course famously. Smokey joint on some podcast. I forget what it was called. But we're here today because Tesla share price is up yet again looking like it's going to close at an all time record. High currently above nine twentieth share up over seven percent amd we're going to go through the kind of bullish take care the bearish take care. What's going on and I'll talk a little bit about the fundamentals behind the company and how they've really honestly improved so any rate time ready as we said before the show if you go back in time to roughly. I think it was last June. You could buy Tesla for about one hundred. Eighty five dollars shares magically masterfully. They're up to nearly a thousand dollars a share and you know when you think about Tesla and its financial improvements over the last couple years. It's had some but certainly not to the extent of rescinded share price. Changing my impression is that there's enthusiasm going on here. That may not be tied to fundamentals with autism. It's all multiple expansion here so I think people are getting really excited about the potential electric cars. Certainly not as in the United States but around the world to for instance I think Singapore just last week said that they wanted to be the first country to only have electric vehicles. Mean like the next decade or two right. So there's these huge initiatives around electric cars and then you've got batteries. You've got a lot of the supply. Didn't stuff that that Tesla's in and then you have just the general called marketing stick. I mean I think we we used to follow invidia. Quite a bit early is to focus on. Invidia quit a bit and retail shares stocks called a Robin Hood share right. Everyone who has a Robin Hood account is like following video news day to day and I think that that's been replaced by Tesla Tesla for sure. Amd will also hot for a long time back. In the CRYPTO currency boom. There's been a lot of companies that are kind of come and gone but I think Tesla's probably the kind of the granddaddy of them all from that perspective but more data about the trading world. This isn't actually Tesla's all time intraday high it. My research holds up that was actually back in February fourth when Tesla had an insane range of eight hundred and thirty three dollars a share to nine hundred sixty eight I think kind of sets the stage for understanding Tesla's price movements which is at their wild and they seem to be based on competing warring religious cults people that are obsessed with Tesla and the future of battery tech and electric cars and getting off a fossil fuels and you know loving Elon. Musk and then people who care more about fundamentals even as Tesla's windmills have honestly improved over the last eighteen months quite a lot. You know absolutely and I. It's crazy is if you look at it. Post Two thousand thirteen from twenty thirteen to twenty nineteen that the stock was essentially flat. I mean they're gonNA has ups and downs and typical gyrations but it was sort of a a wait-and-see stock I mean what's grits. Nuts is just in the last couple of months like four months. It's gone from a low of just below two hundred dollars a share to now we're looking at it as a recording it at two. I'm sorry nine twenty eight and so I mean we're looking at a four X. in three month return profile. I mean look we talk about South Thank Vision Fund on equity all the time but this this is sort of what they were looking for right. It's like literally it's not even a private company. It's a public company. Just bought again with Robin Hood. I don't think you can actually open a Robin Hood Account. Though the hundred billion in cash that would play break. Something in the Robin Hood Landscape but just put this in perspective. Everybody of what we're kind of thinking about. We pulled up. Tesla's financials and so we're going to bore you with a couple of numbers and then we're GonNa talk about what can driving hand today's movement but the reason why this price movement feels so fantastic and so fascinating to watch is because even though Tesla has improved. It's it's profitability. It's cash position it's cash flow. It hasn't grown that much. And if you go back in time looking at the year ending. December twenty eighteen Tesla had total revenues of twenty one. Point five billion give or take and if you look at this last year it was twenty four point six so some growth to be clear but certainly not a lot and in q four q four. Eighteen Tesla had seven point two million in revenue and Q. Four of nineteen seven point four so just Mata Games of growth and improve profitability. Is the difference here so it could be a mixed shift in what they're selling. It could be optimism about the battery market. And there's a lot of possibilities driving this boom. I Tesla but I'm curious Danny. What is your favorite of the various hypotheses that are bouncing around? I think it's a huge expectation around future product lines right so if you look at the units delivered by Tesla over the last two years being Tesla really has expanded writer was just a couple of years. Ago Is under twenty five thousand units a quarter in Q. Four twenty nine thousand dollars. According to Teesta it was well over one hundred thousand one hundred. Fifteen thousand units were delivered quarter. So it has. It has sold more cars. You know four or five act so that that's part of the number here but I think you start to look at like cyber truck which is entering a much more higher margin part of the vehicle market in the mid to large size semi trucks. And the I think the challenges is like. There's there's this gap of like you know. Yes there were one hundred thousand or have cyber trucks were supposedly preordered Alex nor is a fifty eight billion based on how many tweets stupidity excitement. Yes yes but you know the challenges that those were not full deposits right like there are no cars to be sold and they're not going to be cars to be sold for a long period of time and so. I think there's just this huge which we saw the same thing with Softbank. Which is there's this huge prediction of like well look assuming everything goes right over the next four to five years then we will buy into the valuation as if everything was being sold in two thousand twenty three. Unfortunately there's so much risk coming up. I mean it was crazy to me. Is we talking about apple and Amazon? A bunch of others AIRBNB who've been suffering from chronic virus but tesla's a huge Chinese market. I mean we were talking about the Shanghai gigafactory or gigafactory for their new battery which just launched what two three months ago and is now sort of been hit? Hard by by the virus. What what other issues art is Tesla? GonNa come up within the next couple of years that that to me is a huge open question. Well the operating points pretty good if you look back. Tesla's latest earnings investor presentation for example You go to page eighteen following along at home. They show have a rolling twelve month delivery number and in Q. Four trailing twelve months of deliveries reached over three hundred fifty thousand for Unit. So they have always a hit material scale global scale. And so when you bring up these new models to me. They've actually proven their ability to do that. And at increase scale and all that a similar level of quality which means that they can watch model. Why cyber truck that really fast roadster that they showed for four minutes and never did anything with put that out please? I want to go bankrupt. So tell me one she please does. I want to stay married. That's more I hear. The roadster does super well New England winters. Yeah it's designed actually for Rhode Island's a narrow cobbled streets and I think the cyber trucks tank like atmosphere is what you're looking for for Rhode Island. Well especially the kids. I'll need those unbreakable windows. Okay but going back to today and what's driving this one day shift and Tesla's stock price drove us. Mad is looking at what's going on. There was a new analyst. Note coming out. Invesco strategist Tim. Horace Bra talked a lot. About how the Fed's decision learned. The quantity was helping drive momentum stocks of which is of course one. Alex Potter an analyst with the Piper Sandler raised his price target for Tesla to above nine hundred bucks a share. A little late given that already is but hey you know better late than having a one hundred ninety nine target which is what seen in business and then of course. There's also some rumors going around that In China to tinkering with a new kind of cobalt free battery which is supposed to be important. Even though I will admit I was a chemistry. So a couple of things confluence that I've picked up Enthusiasm momentum and this is the best for the Washington this is like the old bitcoin. We seventeen when bitcoin was hot. And you can watch it every day and it was fun. That's Tesla's stock today. I don't know what that means for the company but I'm having a hell of a time just watching this stuff happened absolutely and I think I think another statistic I would use on this front. Which would take into account allow this news which is the percentage of Tesla's shares held by institutions? Actually pretty low. I it's fifty five percent. Suit is a COP apple obviously pretty well known company at sixty three percent right and in many cases those institutions held for a long time so Tesla's largest shareholder baillie Gifford. We interviewed a Charles Plowden. Who HEADS UP THE PRIVATE MARKETS? Investing at Baillie Gifford for extra credit last year and they've been the company for more than a decade of our call and part of what I think the magic is for Tesla is you have this base of very long-term acid holders who believe in the company and have been holding a long period of time. And then you have this controversy in the retail market of people. Saying we'll do. Do I see two thousand going even higher right? And so the the debate between long and short ends up driving so much attention to the shares. That it's the dinner party stock conversation that you're hearing on. God's a bit of a carnival atmosphere to it you know Elon. Musk And grinds Elon. Musk and Joe Rogan Elon. Musk and this and that I mean he's become a celebrity in such a way that it's rare to see and the ruggedly buttoned up world of business. I mean I mean not to bring up. We were just you know owners Lee. Belykh Adam Newman had a touch of the celebrity to him in the semi that you must does. Though a fraction of what you Llaneras and normally we see people when they become wealthy and powerful retreat into their shells but like the Google founders. And how they kind of step back from the public light incrementally and now entirely from their company. Ilan doesn't give it you know dealing with throw. A rocket is truck and shutters. Window will just do it again. I mean talk a bow different. And that's that's the that's entertainment on a more serious note before we go to any One other thing we didn't touch on that could be driving enthusiasm. Sentiment and share price. Surges is Tesla's solar panel stuff. And I say stop because I'm reading today. That the solar roof that they brought out years ago and never really. Kinda put on the market is ramping up. And so we're seeing Tesla differentiate not in the automotive space but also outside of that in the in the ultrasound generation and storage space which some people believe could be a huge growth opportunity for the company. And I don't know how you feel about Ciller but I think that's probably true I think is probably the economics have gotten a better for solar and I again. I I think the magic of the share today is do you believe in each of the expansion opportunities for each of these different business lines and I think I think when you let me give you a comparison. Bordier a Canadian company who used to make snow. Mobiles expanded into planes trains jets and all kinds of other categories over the last couple years just this morning announced it was selling off its trained business to Allston French large Train manufacturer and really it was a story. overexpansion right. Here's a company that sort of got out of what it knew what to do. It got into jets trains and get it all these different spaces and so the question is do you believe in the musk magid. I mean that's sort of the bet that everyone has to believe in which is look. It's not just going from model to model three. It's not just going to cyber track. Meets still car at the end of day. Now you're getting into solar panels. Now you're getting into battery construction for not just homes but also at like a nation state scale kind of battery technology and I all. These are just technical. Risk that up like every single one of these is a completely new product. So I think you know. That's the bet that everyone has to make and that's why it's so exciting. Yeah Yeah Yeah. I totally agree with that but the all throughout there is that incomes tesla. It feels less of a musk better than it used to be. Because the company no longer bleeds so much cash at once. You stop bleeding. Cash and can begin to generate material consistent operating cash flow and free cash flow and more strict metric. You're willing Rome destiny and you have more space to make mistakes before it. Always only Tesla was on a tightrope if they missed this launch. That factory blew up. That tech. Didn't sell whatever that was. GonNa be the end of the company. They made a series of all. In bets of your poker player. Was My impression watching the company for years now with trailing operating cash flow positively and free casual Timothy. The company's kind of okay generated over the last four quarters over a billion dollars in free cash flow and just I believe did a placement of shares for a couple of billion at very high share price which is super smart. You know getting anymore taught so you know the first thing that we learned on this show was Jason Lincoln telling us that Elon. Musk is better at raising money than anyone else in the history of the world. He's that he's able to go out there and get cash and here again. He's doing it twice once running the company last and two from the share price surge. So Tesla is in the best shape it's ever been. I don't know if it's worth nine hundred twenty dollars. But the days of four twentieth funding secured certainly are behind us. And Danny. I'll give you the last word. I think the thing to pay attention to again as I think mosques the magic here but it goes beyond that I I do think marketing if you look at GM Ford you know. The large automobile manufacturers a huge part of their cost structure is marketing right. Like the amount of money you see it when you watch The Super Bowl. You'll see this when you watch different kinds of sports games. There's massive marketing budgets to push cars off the dealership at Tesla. Has this magic with a person who basically gets free advertising every single day on the business pages on the front cover of magazines or seeing must. You're seeing Tesla. All that is free business and so again you have cool cars. You have great marketing. You're not paying for any of it. You have free cash flow. It's clearly a more stable coming in. There was a couple of years ago. And there's this huge kind of expansion opportunities on the horizon coming up. You know that all up together I understand the lungs. I also understand the shorts but I guess we'll sort of see where it all comes together in the next couple weeks. Yeah and by the good call on the importance of free marketing. For Tesla as we're sitting here squeezing an extra equity episode just fine on Tesla because we found so entertaining so it's not nefarious per se is just if you care about financial markets and companies and growth. You can't not be watching

"Let's talk about that new iphone the new bells and whistles. It's the camera Larry. I think it's a camera so there's two things that struck me about the new iphone one especially the iphone eleven in pro one is battery life the eleven pro they claimed four hours better than the ten S and five hours better if you get the the the Max extra-large and so if that's true that's great but what really amazed me is when apple showed photographs. It didn't show snapshot from people like me. Were were you know kids taking either vacation or taking snapshots. It showed professional photographers doing amazing things with its camera. When it showed off the video radio feature it hired a cinematographer to work on a Hollywood back lot working with a producer director and professional actors to show something that would look good. I suspect back in a movie theater and it really struck me and I've been true for a while but it really hit me how these cameras aren't just replacing point and shoot cameras but replacing replacing high end cameras I mean I haven't used a camera of a dedicated camera in a couple of years now and if this iphone is as good as it looks you could throw away your basic beyond the camera capabilities not a lot of major changes in the eleven pro. No I don't think so you know the usual faster after chips and better glass. It's less likely to break and better waterproofing things of that nature so I would say the takeaways on on both of the phones are the cameras even by the way the less expensive camera which starts at six ninety nine which by apple standard to the bargain. That's actually a cheap laugh year. They're cheapest phone with seven fifty. Even that at phone has two cameras instead of three and the pro and looks pretty good from the demo that I saw..

"Larry is away today but earlier we asked him why the activists are pressuring democratic presidential candidates for one thing it puts net neutrality back on the front burner. This is an issue. That's not in the news every day but when something happens when for example the f._c._c. votes on something or bill is presented to congress or the rally the people start talking about it so it's a conversation starter and i'm pretty sure these groups want this to be in the conversation second of all it's kind of a natural all to bring this up to the democratic candidates given that the democrats pretty much have been supportive net neutrality all along it passed the federal communications commission when an obama with president and the f._c._c. had a majority of democrats on it and it's also been a subject of congressional legislation which of course has not passed yet yet but certainly could be brought up in congress and would need the support of the democratic party which i think it would get but clearly would need some republican support as well so larry. Do you think the candidates will go along with it. I think most candidates they're gonna make some kind of pledge in favor of net neutrality. There are different strategies or approaches at different candidates may take take some for example may pledge to appoint f._c._c. commissioners who are pro net neutrality others might pledge to support congressional legislation that would establish net neutrality as a matter of law some would do both but i would be surprised if any of the major democratic candidates didn't in some way shape or form go along with a net neutrality push..

Instead drops you off it can go then park itself somewhere else perhaps outside of the congested areas where parking cheaper and easier to find. And then when you're ready to go home, it could pick you up and take you home or more likely pick someone else up and take them to work.

Tech companies to stop the spread of vaccine misinformation

"Both Facebook and Amazon are taking steps to fight the spread of misinformation. Larry tell us a little bit more about what they're doing. Well, what Facebook is doing is trying to essentially demote anything that argue that for example, vaccines cause autism just about every medical and health official in the world has said that a hoax. It's not true. But there are people who are still spreading that. So they're not saying you can't post information. They're not censoring it so to speak, but they're demoting. They're also not gonna take any advertising money for spreading that kind of stuff, and I actually covered that in my Mercury News column, which will come out online tomorrow. But the preview on my website and Larry thrilled dot com where I talk in more detail about what Facebook of doing and why they're doing it. So again, they're not saying you can't write about it. But the year not going to get the audience that you would get if it weren't fake news, and Amazon, I guess if taking books off the shelves so to speak. They're not going to be selling books that promote the theory of well the. Oh, called autism cures or octave and prevention again trying to take away this false information. And the reason frankly children and adults also risk if they're not getting their vaccines. Not only do that if they're alive, but if they get a contagious disease it riff other people with a well. So this information that if myth leading and potentially dangerous, I Roger sneak peek, and I'm a little biased because I'm one of your biggest fans, but I thought fabulous job talking about that balance between first amendment rights and the importance of not spreading this information. That's right. And and the it gets very tricky, especially when you start getting into political news or even controversial medical issue. I mean, look, I remember the big debate about low carb, high carb and a lot of medical officials were thing Ono everybody should have a low carb high carb, low, carb, whatever it was they kind of which decides. And what people that were considered kind of oddball are actually embraced later on. So you want to have a debate and a discussion, but when something's when proven wrong, and it's clearly. And it's cooler harmful. Then maybe Facebook needs to take a stand. I was wondering about Amazon's move to remove the books to me, it just feels different lowering the importance of their frequency of post that they deem to pass on information to me feels different than not selling books or Patty. I suspect you and I both journalists both strong. First amendment advocates are always going to have trouble. When anybody said that information, no matter how much we disagree with it. If not allowed to be distributed, and I too am very uncomfortable. If much I agree with the reason why they're doing it. And the same thing with hate speech, antisemitic speech and anything else that I consider to be vile. You know, I still believe in the first amendment. So it's it's a tough issue. But remember the first amendment applies to government? It is not apply to private company Amazon whether you like it or not certainly have the legal right to do whatever they want in regard.

"Larry tell us more about the conversation. Well, first of all, I it was part of the safety advisory board. Normally the thing they're under confidential. But I think I can talk about this. Because most of what we talked about with really public information. And I think reading between the lines it's a work in progress, and they're trying to kind of figure things out. But bottom line is the Facebook as we know it is not going to change dramatically. It will still be Facebook. If you wanna post to a wide circle of friends or even to the general public. I'm pretty sure that's going to continue to be available. However, they're going to emphasize some of their other products, and they already have for example, if you think about what fat that is already an encrypted messaging app that they bought and had been running for a number of years right for well. So they're going to kind of combine some of those features with Instagram some of those featured with Facebook, but at the end of the day, offer, private and semi private messaging opportunity. So that you can have a one on one with somebody. You can be in a small group. And those messages will be encrypted which. Means no one not Facebook. Not the police not creepy people in down the street, not the Russians. No, one can see them if they're encrypted. So that doesn't mean everything on Facebook will be encrypted. But there will be products with encrypted messages that are available. They move forward. The receive to say that this is more than just Facebook being magnanimous or taking care of its users. I mean, they really are running the risk of losing a lot of users if they don't get on top of this. Yeah. I think that this is a combination of responding to pressure doing the right thing. I don't want us to, you know, take away any credit, but also understanding how the market's changed when Facebook first came around it with competing with my space, and it was all about public sharing or quasi-public. Sharing of information. Social networking now messaging is really big. And if you look at Snapchat, I with at their offices in Santa Monica last week, they really promote the fact that most snaps most communications are one to one or maybe small group of friends. They're not into big publishing, and I think that's where the market is moving and Facebook. Responding. And so it part of it is just a way to sort of stay relevant. But they are also responding to all of the privacy concerns that people have been raising about them..

Pittsburgh shooting draws attention to sites where hate speech flourishes

"We've been learning a lot about that hate speech website gab. It has been shut down after it was discovered the suspect in the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting spewed his venom on that site. Larry. This has prompted a discussion the the fine line between free speech and hate speech. You're absolutely right Betty, and it's very difficult line in some cases. Although I did go to gab dot com over the weekend before the site was shut down and looked around. And I don't think that line with refine their what I thought was absolutely virulent comments about not only Jews, but Muslim LGBT community anybody who some people considered other. Now, it also had other content. There were posted about music and theater, and the usual things he would see, but they had this very large collection of what they call controversial speech. I don't think if any question about that Facebook Twitter any responsible site would have no question about taking that down. Because clearly. Violates the terms of service that the sites have about anything that's in any way, threatening anything that demeaned a specific group of people certainly the comments about I don't even want to repeat the comments, but some of the common fit that Bauer of a posted on the site or one that wouldn't be allowed on Facebook or Twitter, assuming that they knew they were there. They would take them down ahead. They've been notified learning in this case involving gap who pulled the psych down was that the operators out of abundance of caution on their part or was it an outside entity of some kind. Well, I think the the the operators may have sensually moved it. But what's happened is that they're hosting provider fed? No. As of today, they're pulling the plug their domain provider. Go daddy said that they were going to take away the domain which means if he went to fight you wouldn't get anywhere. The funding Thorpe they have some kind of premium service that pay pal would help them get money to they pulled the plug. So all of the vendor that they depend upon when away having fed that. There are underground hosting sites. That will probably put them back online. There's crypto currency that could provide funding. So it's not impossible that they could do what they say. They're going to do which is to come back at a later date. But at the end, it was the legal business entities that helped the site operate that made a decision, and it's and it sounds like from from you that there was a number of them made that decision, right?

"Facebook is unveiled a new way to video chat. It's called portal. Larry. How does it work? Well, it's a device it fits. I don't know maybe on your kitchen counter, maybe in your living room and there's two version. One hundred ninety nine dollar which had attended screen, and then a three hundred and forty nine dollars version with fifteen point, six inch screen and it's got a camera. It's got a speaker. It's got a microphone and its main function is Videocon video conversation to the Facebook messenger. So imagine that you're sitting there in San Francisco and maybe you've got children or grandchildren, New York. You guys can have a conversation. One unique feature, which I think is kind of cool if a camera will actually follow you around the world. So if you move from one part of the room, the other the camera will follow you it or reframe you within within the picture too. It's got some very smart software. It also has Alexa built into it so you can do all the things you can do with an Amazon echo and other kind of cool feature. If you're listening to music on Spotify, let's say you and I are chatting. We can both listen to the same thong at the time. Maybe have a virtual dance together now. All that sounds fabulous. But if I use my iphone or my MAC book, I can do the exact same thing in terms of having that video conference, can I not or your ipad or your very inexpensive, Android tablet. The picked up for eighty bucks or maybe you've got the echo show or with Google new device from Lenovo with a lot of ways to do kind of all this. Now, the Facebook messenger part, that's somewhat unique, not completely, and the cool camera. You know, to be honest with you, I don't think it's worth three hundred and forty nine dollars or even one forty ninety nine. I might change my tune after I tried and they will send me one sometime next month. But out of the box, it doesn't impress me that much. And one other question, the companies drawn criticism in the past for breaches involving users, personal data, are people going to be willing to trust Facebook with something like this. There are going to be skeptics and there should be. They have all sorts of privacy stories, including encryption, including the software, everything. On the device not on Facebook servers, so they are, you know, have a good story to tell about privacy, but people will be skeptical because it's Facebook and there's a device involved here this time. This is hardware in addition to a software, like, yeah, this is hard way this is Facebook owns Oculus, but for the most part, they have not been in the hardware business. They came out with an ill-fated phone, this hardware product, it's not cheap, and it will be very interesting to see how well the company does with it.

You may have already gotten a real w. e. for example, in the case of a missing child, an amber alert or dangerous weather.

The one that was tested today, the af. It's something we hope we never have to see in real life to get that thing national public warning where the president needs to communicate with a population about a significant national crisis.

Think some folks were surprised that it was called the presidential alert. Is coming from FEMA is accurate is coming from FEMA, and I know that it was initiated by George Bush, but President, George W Bush after the Katrina filtration. He really, or his administration really started the process of wanting to move alerts over to smartphones. Now, the we hear our KCBI are very aware of their all broadcasters of the alerts that we carry on our air and you hear on television. And so this is really an offensive digital sibling or child. You might even Fe of type of alerts that we all grew up with in the we hear tested on broadcast stations. Larry, I heard from some friends who didn't get the alerts that they'd be worried well, no, they shouldn't be worried I, I'm not sure why they wouldn't have. I certainly did some work during. I think the eleven o'clock hour from not mistaken. It's possible that they might have had a carrier that's not part of the fist. I'm not all carrier are, or they could have had a phone that's not compatible probably an older phone. But any of the recent smartphones that you would bought in the last couple of years should be compatible as are the may. Carrier like AT and t. and variety..

"Refresh your memory gives us a brief recap of that initial controversy. You know, Dunkelberg gave an interview with Recode CARA Swisher yesterday in which he had that people who post holocaust Niles always don't intend have they don't always have the, but I think if how he said it and of course, people reacted very heavily to that because holocaust denial is a horrible thing. It's it's always associated with anti semitism and many, many people considered hate speech, and he argued that the it shouldn't be necessarily removed from the platform. Now I've had a chance to talk to people about it. I've been here all day. I'm not talking to an official spokesperson, but one argument that may or may not be relevant to this discussion is intention does impact whether Facebook take something down. I'll give you an example, if someone would oppose a holocaust, denial story simply saying, I think that the holocaust didn't happen, and here's why that would be likely considered hate speech and could be removed because it's associated with an anti. You know, anti semitism. And it's clearly wrong, and it's it's really hurtful, especially for holocaust survivors their family. However, let's say somebody said, here's an article by holocaust. Denial isn't this horrible, isn't this outrageous? This person is absolutely wrong. Holocaust didn't happen. You're toasting the same article, but the context is to protest it rather than to celebrate it. And that would be treated differently. So intention does matter. I don't know if that's what Tucker bird meant, but that one one interpretation that I've heard.

"Google is coming out with a new version of android called android go which is optimized for low cost phones earlier we ask larry why they're doing well you know there are a lot of lowcost android phones around the world if specially in the developing world and the problem with the fall into the tend to be slower they tend to have less storage they just generally tend to be less efficient because obviously made cut back on the cost of production than i could have much memory they're gonna have the floor profit there they're going to have older technology and ghul of course keep the android up to date thinking about all the fancy new phones that are coming out all the time from them and samsung and all the other android vendors but info doing they could very easily leave behind all of these other phones that are out there not only in the developing world but also in the united states and other countries where a certain percentage of the population isn't willing to spend hundreds of dollars in some cases close to a thousand dollars for one of the fancy phones so they've come out with called android go all right so what's special about android go will the operating system which is actually an extension or if it apart of orio eight point one so it's not a completely different operating system but it's i guess you might call it a strippeddown or specialized version of it is really designed to work on these phone so it's going to be more efficient it's going to make better use of space and it's going to support apps that are designed especially for this operating system so for example google with actually going to have lighter versions of the standard outfit come with android phones and they're going to have a special app store which is going to feature apps that are designed for this much more efficient type of phone what do you think of the idea well i think it's essential if we are going to see a continued growth of android in the developing world and among those in the developed world who either can't afford more expensive phones that perhaps might wanna buy a second fallen her a phone for a child and not one spend a lot of money on it and obviously.
